to what some have said that is not at all why you were not elected. the sheriff was a very popular and well-respected supervisor, and our district strongly supported his reinstatement. your vote to reinstate him actually earned you votes and significantly increased your support in the district. i want to go on record speaking as a domestic violence survivor for myself and others we know your vote does not mean you condone or minimize the scourge of domestic violence but demonstrates your ability to vote on fact and law rather than emotion. the attacks on you were some pr consultant -- to make a false -- against you. you can leave office with your head held high knowing you did the morally and legally correct thing. the attacks on you have highlighted just how ha rampant racism is. one of the values you have taught me was about servant leadership and that is why i'm sure the right was galvanized to defeat you. they knew your -- >> president chiu: thank you very much. next speaker. >> good evening, supervisors. david elliott lewis. i'm here to thank supervisor olague for her service.

disastrous and terrible defeat by james k. polk in the election of 1844. a defeat which he never expected and, frankly, did not believe. and the defeat was probably caused by the fact that he was opposed to the war. unfortunately, henry clay not only have suffered through the defeat at his namesake and favorite son henry clay junior, like john j. hardin although he was awake, volunteered to lead troops into mexico. so junior becomes a leader, a kentucky troops, takes them down to mexico and he is killed at the battle of buena vista just like john j. hardin is. so henry clay has to face the death of his son in this war he did not believe in, and after his son's death, he becomes very religious. he gets baptized and he decides to make a speech opposing the war that helps to bring the war to a close. and clay's speech which is hugely important because reporters traveled over 100 miles to hear it, and the newly invented telegraph meant that within a couple days of the speech being uttered by him it was reported around the country. clay's speech really touched on all of those for a opposing the wa

of the elections. so, the sulzberger's basically own the newspaper, or the family. we will come to that in a minute. if you guys want to sit down, there are plenty of seats here. so we are talking about the sulzberger's, and they own a newspaper, and went on to be a public newspaper under arthur ochs sulzberger, who recently died. that became not a privately- owned company but a public company. this is interesting because it is now a public company. one of the things people are wondering is why, if "the times" is having a financial crisis -- which is my next subheading -- how can they survive? the answer is, how can "the times" survive? we will talk about that. maybe we can talk about it now. will they survive as they now exist, can it, financially?

elected. the fact of the matter is it is not free, it is very expensive and the middle class is going to have to pay for it but we simply can't afford the amount of government we have been promised and you have the government trying to write the giant ponzi schemes. it can't work, it is impossible to reform these programs in the way it will work. we have to acknowledge that and will never get the kind of economic growth you're talking about 4%, 5% per year unless we let the economy restructure. they had to let interest rates go up, they are much too low to encourage savings and investments aninvestmentand allo restructure meaning a lot of people have to lose a lot of money. people have to stop spending so they can start saving so to have capital investments needed to grow the economy. melissa: i think i'm depressed, none of those things will happen. power panel, thank you very much. coming up next on "money," the u.s. now has the most expensive corn. fresh government subsidies and ethanol production could be to blame, but we have fallout from consumers. super storm sandy destroys a fa

from the communist party's newly elected leader xi jinping. egypt has resumed talks with the international monetary fund over a 3.6 billion euro loan to help stabilize the country's currency. >> the value of the egyptian pound has slid to record lows against the us dollar in recent weeks as egyptian purchase foreign currencies out of fear the economy could collapse. two years of political upheaval have discouraged foreign investors and caused a sharp drop in tourism, one of egypt's most important industries. the imf loan was originally agreed on in november, but then delayed by cairo as the government rushed to approve a controversial new constitution. >> germany's former president, christian wulff, and his wife have separated less than a year after he resigned in disgrace over corruption allegations. lawyers representing them confirmed the split and said the couple are already living apart. >> it is no doubt the final act in a long drama surrounding wulff, who, more than a year ago was a rising star in the conservative cuddu. he was forced to step down following all
